IBM Domino Notes

Solution simplfies the data migration process from Lotus Notes databases to MongoDB (NET.Notes database backend) . For purpose of data synchronization from Lotus Notes to MongoDB we provide a converter application. Document-oriented nature of MongoDB database allows the transfer a lot of different data types, such as RichText, attachments or multi-valued fields.

The converter itself is in the form of Lotus Notes application and you can set up the entire data synchronization mapping there. The configuration covers:

  • Notes server and file path to NSF database
  • Form name for data filtering
  • Last modification data to fine tune synchronization
  • Field mapping (LN to MongoDB)



Field mapping is done in the form of separate documents, where you can specify:

  • Lotus Notes source data – it may be a single field, formula or attachment
  • MongoDB field name
  • Multivalue field type
  • Field Type – apart from common field types, such as text, number, date, it also supports RichText (they are converted into HTML) and Attachments (which are stored in GridFS, file storage of MongoDB)

The synchronization can be run manually or periodically. It uses Lotus Notes document unique ID as a main key to properly connect all related data..
